Why All Your English Mates Keep Telling You That Football’s Coming Home

Gareth Southgate is rapidly becoming a national icon thanks to his performance at this World Cup

A first World Cup semi-final spot since 1990 is now within their sights, as they prepare to face Sweden in Samara, while a first global crown since 1966 is there to be shot at.

At the final whistle, Gareth Southgate, normally mild-mannered, walked on to the pitch and roared his approval to 5,000 England fans who roared back.

Defeating Sweden by 2-0 goals, the English football team now finds itself preparing for a World Cup semifinal for the first time in 28 years.

Along with the clip, posted on Twitter, he wrote: "It's coming home... guess who?"

Throw it away Gonna blow it away But I know they can play 'Cause I remember.

Not that this has put off the faithful from exercising their vocal chords - and even if their singing often lacks tunefulness, these spirited followers of the Three Lions surely make up for this with sheer exuberance.

'This has been an incredible #WorldCup run and we've enjoyed every minute.

England is on its way to becoming the first country to win three consecutive FIFA World Cup tournaments.

The Three Lions was originally released for the European Championships in 1996 when it topped the charts.

In 2018, right at this moment, "Three Lions" is all-pervasive on the English airwaves, utterly unavoidable at bars and pubs, pumped out virtually on repeat before, during and after English World Cup matches.

Talk about spreading the England cheer on the other side of the pond!
